Nvidia has unveiled its new Drive AutoPilot system at CES, bringing advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) to automakers in 2020.
Nvidia has been one of the main drivers of autonomous vehicles, using its automotive-grade hardware to improve the way self-driving vehicles understand the environment around them through different ADAS that controls braking, steering and acceleration.
Nvidia has worked with a range of automakers in the past, but this latest news is certainly of great interest to the industry, as OEMs will soon be able to, essentially, pick the AutoPilot system off of the shelf. Companies who do not have a deal with Nvidia will be able to use the system, making it cheaper and easier for both parties. Tailoring these complex systems to each vehicle manufacturer is not only incredibly difficult and time consuming, but will indirectly work towards a standard in autonomous development.
